Info for Beach Samba

Originally released in 1967, Astrud Gilberto's „Beach Samba“ is one of the Brazilian songstress' classic albums. The bossa nova craze--ignited in 1963, by Gilberto herself, with her lovely, artless vocal on Stan Getz's 'The Girl from Ipanema'--was winding down.

The album sees Gilberto stretching beyond her usual collection of bossa novas and sambas, though the title track and 'Nao Bate O Corocao' are two of her best, into relaxed, swinging versions of such pop standards as 'Misty Roses' and 'My Foolish Heart.' Perhaps the oddest inclusion is a cover of The Lovin' Spoonful's 'You Didn't Have To Be So Nice,' sung by Gilberto as a duet with her eight-year-old son, which is better than you might expect.

Like the album as a whole, it's perfectly charming and delightful. Peculiarly, the album ends with five tracks from Gilberto's classic 1966 album with the Walter Wanderley Trio.
